Should a traveller lead non-travellers in Salaah?

Answered according to Hanafi Fiqh by

Q. When there are Musaafirs and non-Musaafirs together, who should lead the Salaah in Jamaat?

A. If a group of Shari’ travellers (Musaafirs) and non-travellers (Muqeems) have gathered for the performance of Salaah, then it is preferred for a non-traveller amongst them to lead the others in Salaah. If however, a traveller leads them in Salaah, the Salaah will still be valid. (Shaami 1/558)
